1741-BB French Colonies Sou Marque. Strasbourg Mint. Vlack-253b. Rarity-6. S/Inverted 3 in SIT. MS-62 (PCGS). 32.8 grains. An interesting variety with the S in SIT punched over an inverted 3. Much of the silvered finish remains evident, and the smooth surfaces are virtually distraction-free. Tied for highest-graded at PCGS, for the date and mintmark, but not distinguished by the overpunched die variety in the PCGS Population report.
